Do Not Disturb: A Novel
Kirsty, her husband Adrian, and their two girls, Amelia and Evie, are moving to Wales to open a guest house. Along with Kirsty’s mother Carol, they are planning on living in the large manor they purchased. Things seem to be going as planned when Carol announces that Kirsty’s cousin Selena, with whom Kirsty had a falling out when they were eighteen, will be coming to stay at the guesthouse with her daughter Ruby. Kirsty initially feels that it is a bad omen, but when Serena arrives and settles in, they make amends. Kirsty’s brother and sister-in-law come to stay and celebrate Carol’s birthday. Dean, Serena’s ex-boyfriend from high school, comes by as well and Kirsty starts to get an uneasy feeling again. Then there is the guest with the dog who keeps warning Kirsty that bad things are in the house. Sure enough, within a few days, a body is found at the foot of the staircase. Was the person pushed or did he/she fall?
This book has a great cast of characters with complex yet realistic relationship dynamics. Why is Nathan acting so strangely around Serena? And what is Kirsty’s oldest daughter hiding? Do Not Disturb is an excellent mystery thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what happened until the very end.
